Liposuction is the removal of unwanted body fat by suction. The term lipodystrophy is used to describe areas of disproportionate fat placement. Even at a perfect weight, one can have excess fat in any given area. What areas are amenable to liposuction treatment? A better question would be what areas are not amenable! Just about any area you can imagine may benefit from this procedure in the properly chosen patient.

Prior to its USA introduction in 1982, liposuction was embryonic in nature and had only been tried sparingly in France and Italy. In 1982, I first became interested in liposuction because I saw the technique as a safe easy way of removing unwanted fat about the face and neck. I took all the training courses and my career in liposuction began. Since then, I have performed liposuction on over 3200 patients.
